These are two, slab and log live edge benches. The wood is pine (hemlock) and the benches show natural distress markings. The benches are about 4.5 feet long and about 10” wide. Mortise and tenon construction. Legs are connected to top with wedged through tenons. Finish is tung oil. One of the benches is for the lovely neighbors who gave me a pile of wood out of his/her garage. The top of the bench is made of the wood they so kindly donated to me. :) I need to add more pics, but the batteries in my camera just died. I will post more pics soon.

Oh yea, I really like these bracings. Looks good. I like the way you make sure the grain arc is up on the slabs. Should add life to these projects.

Nice work as always and I agree with the others as far as more photos of the grain. Especially the cherry one.

Looks great. Do you sell these? May be a good Christmas gift for one of my family members.

I am not on etsy yet. Though I am thinking about doing etsy rather than ebay. I like the etsy forum better I think? I want to get a few more pieces finished first before I create a website. I can’t knock the benches down to ship they are all tenoned together for what I hope is for all time. :) These smaller benches aren’t so heavy to ship- but the bigger slab benches that I make are pretty heavy. Though Ted Frumkin (L/j member) makes really big pieces and he blanket wraps and ships them all over the place to buyers. So far the stuff I have sold has been picked up or delivered by me.
